Oh yay! You guys are still here. Meaning my affinity for hot dogs (and a decidedly Americasian interpretation, at that) didn’t scare you away. I knew you could hang. As your reward, this week we’re talking more Superbowl-ready eats that are borderline goofy (enchilada sauce on toppa hummus? she dun lost her shit!) but silly delicious all the same. You’ll see what I mean when we get into the nitty gritty later on. And really, is it even that weird? It’s clearly not bizarre enough to warrant the gibberish I keep slapping in between all these parentheses (like this crap — which is here solely for the purpose of example), but I feel a little insecure every time I post something that’s not, like, THE Trending Item on Pinterest. (Side note: until I dunk an Oreo in waffle batter and drizzle it with peanut butter, I’m not sure I’ll ever be That Trending Item.) (Side side note: I would so eat that.) You want to lob a boomerang at my head right now, don’t you? (It would be kind of poetic and all given its parenthesis-y shape…) I’m stopping.

fried hot dog + egg sammies with sriracha + shoyu mayo

(*waves*) We (me and hot dogs) should totally sit in a tree and make out super hard. I <3 them in macaroni + cheese. On top of instant ramen. Smashed into a sandwich with a slice of melting American cheese, or dressed up for the street in bacon, mayo and fajita veggies. Shit is legit tasty. I like ’em best with a snappy skin. (Detour: the Weiner Circle in Chicago boasts the snappiest dogs and even snappier staff and only kinda sounds like it was named after a fraternity hazing ritual. GO THERE.) At home, in its simplest form, I like my dog sliced in little circles and tumbled over a bowl of rice or tucked whole into a softened white bun with ketchup only. Because mustard is mustarded. During football season, which packs very little thrill for someone as apathetic about, um, ball sports as yours truly, hot dogs are the equivalent of the Chair Outside the Dressing Room. Like, I don’t really want to go watch the game and pretend I knew that the yellow line doesn’t … Read More
